This LO was made for the following November challenges:
1) 1 & 2 page sketch – sketch #2 (loosely)
2) Journaling – cat#6 – handwritten
3) Daily Inspiration – Nov. 2nd 3 or more Circles
4) Stickers – the letters and photo corners
5) Fall back – I’m pretty sure the flower embellie is from K & Co.
6) Baker’s dozen (see details below for each item)
So, here’s the how I made this LO. First. I used a dot STENCIL (#10) with TAN (#6) paint. Second, I used an embossing folder open and did random rubbings (with some tool I don’t know the name of) to emboss the pattern I thought was PLAID (#9) and then later realized it was argyle so it didn’t really count. I sanded the Core’dinations cardstock so the pattern would show. I adhered the papers similarly to the sketch. I decided to only use two photos and a TAG (#4) instead of the third photo. Next, I picked out a cute quote from a notebook of VELLUM (#12) sentiments to adhere to the tag and since it wouldn’t fit completely, I used a second tag (both tags were part of a RAK from Marci). In order to connect the two tags, I used a WHITE (#8) METAL (#3) grommet. Next, I adhered the embellishment that has the flowers and LEAVES (#1) in the bottom right corner. Then, I took a break. While I was on break, I realized that the embossing was argyle and not plaid, so I got a 6x6 sticker from my stash that was PLAID (#9) and cut it into strips. I used one of the strips to make PHOTO CORNERS (#7) and add them. The next thing I did was paint the white CIRCLES (#2) with some TH crackle paint. I was pretty shocked it was still good. For the title I used another grommet and some alpha stickers to say “THANKFUL (#13) for my family” because the photos are of my cousin and my son from 2001. Then, I added the BUTTONS (#11) and lastly, the B&W arrow WASHI (#5) tape. I double checked the list and realized I was done! It was fun to shop my stash and I felt pretty accomplished at using so many products that I had invested in. This LO took a little bit more time, but was worth the effort.
